Are Prior False Claims of Rape Excluded Under Rape Shield Laws?

Two courts said such evidence is not barred by rape shield in August; the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals in State v. Hooper, 2005 WL 1981789 (Tenn.Crim.App., Aug 16, 2005) and the Utah Supreme Court in State v. Tarrats, 2005 WL 1868861, 532 Utah Adv. Rep. 3, 2005 UT 50--but in each case the error was harmless or the foundation unproved.  [Jack chin]
